The plantation grown Sandal wood with intensive cultivation in organic manner gives good results than the natural once. The naturally grown Chandan tree requires more than 30 years for harvesting, where as invasively cultivated plants starts formation of scented heart wood around 10 to 25 kgs. with the width of 30 cm and 65 cm. in 10 to 15 years.

In earlier days the sandalwood trees were availiable and found in the forest.it can be automaticaly germinated and grown in the forest without any kind of assistance of manpower.So the sandalwood was found in the forest by nature so its called wild cultivation.Now a days due to some unexplained reasons the sandalwood trees not availiable in plenty .So our nation is facing much difficulties to get sandalwood log for medicinal,aroma & divine purpose.So our country passed an ordinance in the parliment in the year of 2002 granting permission to cultivate the sandalwood in private patta lands in india with the additional permission of the Dist.forest officer of the concerned jurisdiction of the farmers.The sandalwood is jungle plant so we can do cultivate any where in india.The opt and correct soil is redsoil,rocky redsoil or foot hills of the any hills that also redsoil.totally very barren land without clay is very suitable for sandalwood cultivation.The black cotton,clay soil and paddy field or where ever water logging will be there those soil perfectly not suitable for sandal cultivation.in some specific case and places sandalwood grows in black soil very rare .But we wnt expect the stipulated yield in stipulated time.I have sandalwood plants in jumbo poly bags in my nursery aged nearly 2 to 2.5 years approximately.Here I uploaded for your ready reference.
